Griffins to Host Two Youth Hockey Camps
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids Griffins will conduct two weeks’ worth of youth hockey camps again this summer, with week one being staged July 17-21 at Griff’s IceHouse at Belknap Park in Grand Rapids, followed by a second week from Aug. 14-18 at Griff’s IceHouse West in Holland. The camps enable kids from across West Michigan convenient access to professional instruction from Griffins players and coaches.
Offered to kids ages 6-14, the camp in Grand Rapids will be instructed by Griffins right wing Dominik Shine and former assistant coach Matt Macdonald, with an appearance by former captain and current assistant coach Brian Lashoff. The Holland camp will feature instruction by Lashoff and Shine. An appearance will also be made during each week by former Grand Rapids assistant coach and 16-year NHL veteran Mike Knuble.
The cost is $400 per child for the Grand Rapids camp, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., and includes a camp jersey, hat, and daily lunch provided by popular local eateries such as Buffalo Wild Wings and Chick-fil-A. The Holland camp is a shorter day (10 a.m.-2 p.m.) and its $350 cost for the week also includes a jersey, hat, and daily lunch. Locker rooms will be provided for both camps to allow kids to leave their equipment at the arena for the week.
